In conjunction with the Cleveland International Film Festival, Playhouse Square is showing several films today at the Hanna Theatre. For fans of short-form storytelling and those with limited attention spans, the Hollywood Shorts program showcases seven short films at 2:30 p.m. Five Dances, which tells the story of a young dancer attempting to choreograph his tumultuous life, shows at 4:30 p.m. Utilizing hands instead of full-bodied actors, the 6:30 p.m. showing of Handy is a comedic adventure of a disembodied hand that falls in love and accidentally sparks a revolution. Wrapping up the evening at 8:45 p.m., The Sax Man is a locally made documentary about the saxophonist we've all seen playing downtown. His surprising and storied past is full of interesting details. Tickets can be purchased online. (Stoops) clevelandfilm.org, 877-304-FILM.
